Diana Krall, “California Dreamin'”: One Track Mind

From http://somethingelsereviews.com/

If there was ever a song in need a contemplative, tic-free modernization, it’s this one. Bursting with so much innate sadness, the Mamas and the Papas’ “California Dreamin’” is the very sound of longing. Unfortunately, much of the song’s brilliance is lost in an of-its-time production that trapped the group in a tinny echo chamber.

Diana Krall is here to help. Stripping away all of this song’s most dated elements, with the help of a clean and sensitive approach from producer David Foster, she gives “California Dreamin’” back to itself. Then, after reanimating all of that emotion, she adds a perfectly attenuated piano aside — maybe the only hint here that she’s more than a smokey chanteuse...

From jazzwisemagazine.com

Multi-Grammy award winning singer Diana Krall has had to postpone both her autumn American tour and the release of her new album Wallflower – which was due for release in October – until 2 February 2015, due to a severe case of pneumonia. In a statement released today, Krall’s label Verve stated ‘Diana’s condition has become much more chronic than first anticipated, and she is unable to travel or engage in any promotional or touring activities for at least another 6 weeks to 2 months’.

Diana Krall Covers ‘California Dreamin” on New Album (Exclusive Song Premiere)
By ERIC R. DANTON

“California Dreamin’” had intrigued Diana Krall for years—more than a decade, in fact—before the jazz singer got around to recording the Mamas & the Papas’ 1965 hit for her new album “Wallflower.” Krall premieres her version of the song today on Speakeasy, along with a video that shows her performing the song solo on piano.

Krall’s studio take, produced by Verve Music Group Chairman David Foster, is spare and somber as she reduces the familiar, harmony-stacked melody to a simple vocal line lightly brushed with piano and rich swells of strings...
